Tenure-track faculty positions in Computer Science and in the Theory of Quantum Information and Computation

The Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) seeks applicants for a tenure-track position in Computer Science at the assistant or associate professor level. Additionally, Computer Science and the Harvard Quantum Initiative seeks applicants for a tenure-track position in the area of the theory of quantum information and/or computation at the assistant or associate professor level. Both have an expected start date of July 1, 2021.

For the position in Computer Science, we invite applications in all areas of Computer Science. Areas of special interest include (but are not limited to) both machine learning and algorithms (broadly construed). For the position in the area of the theory of quantum information and/or computation, areas of interest may include but are not limited to quantum algorithms, communication, complexity, control, cryptography, and information processing.

We seek candidates who have a strong research record and a commitment to undergraduate and graduate teaching and training. We particularly encourage applications from historically underrepresented groups, including women and minorities. A doctorate or terminal degree in a related field is required by the expected start date for each position.

Required application documents include a cover letter, CV, a statement of research interests, a teaching statement, and up to three representative papers. In addition, we ask for a statement describing efforts to encourage diversity, inclusion, and belonging, including past, current, and anticipated future contributions in these areas. Candidates are also required to submit the names and contact information for at least three and up to five references, and the application is complete only when three letters have been submitted. At least one letter must come from someone who has not served as the candidate’s undergraduate, graduate, or postdoctoral advisor. We encourage candidates to apply by December 15, 2020, but will continue to review applications until the position is filled. Applicants for the tenure-track position in Computer Science can apply online at http://academicpositions.harvard.edu/postings/9834. Applicants for the tenuretrack position in the area of the theory of quantum information and/or computation can apply online at http://academicpositions.harvard.edu/postings/9835.

We are an equal opportunity employer, and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy and pregnancy-related conditions or any other characteristic protected by law.
